Casino [1995]

Genre: Biography, Crime, Drama
Director Martin Scorsese reunites with members of his GoodFellas gang (writer Nicholas Pileggi; actors Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, and Frank Vincent) for a three-hour epic about the rise and fall of mobster Sam "Ace" Rothstein (De Niro), a character based on real-life gangster Frank "Lefty" Rosenthal. (It's modeled after on Wiseguy and GoodFellas and Pileggi's true crime book Casino: Love and Honor in Las Vegas.) Through Rothstein, the picture tells the story of how the Mafia seized, and finally lost control of, Las Vegas gambling. The first hour plays like a fascinating documentary, intricately detailing the inner workings of Vegas casinos. Sharon Stone is the stand out among the actors; she nabbed an Oscar nomination for her role as the voracious Ginger, the glitzy call girl who becomes Rothstein's wife. The film is not as fast paced or gripping as Scorsese's earlier gangster pictures (Mean Streets and GoodFellas), but it's still absorbing. And, hey--it's Scorsese! --Jim Emerson

Nicky Santoro:
Where the fuck do you get off talking to people about me behind my back going over my head?

Ace Rothstein:
What people?

Nicky Santoro:
What did you think, I wasn't gonna find out?

Ace Rothstein:
I don't know what your talking about Nick.

Nicky Santoro:
No? You said I'm bring heat on you? I've gotta listen to people because of your fuckin' shit? Your ordering me out? You better get your own fuckin' army pal.

Ace Rothstein:
I didn't do anything. I didn't order you or anybody. I just told Andy Stone that you had alot of heat on you. That's a problem?

Nicky Santoro:
You want me to get out of my own fuckin' town?

Ace Rothstein:
Yeah. I just want the bullshit to blow over for a while so I can run the casino. If anything goes wrong with the casino, it's my ass. It's not yours, it's my ass.

Nicky Santoro:
Listen. I don't know if you know this or not but you only have your fuckin' casino because I made that possible. I'm what counts out here. Not your fuckin' country clubs, or your fuckin' TV shows. And what the fuck are you doing on TV anyhow? You know I get calls from back home every fuckin' day? They think you went bad shit.

Ace Rothstein:
I only go on TV to get the food and beverage job. You know that.

Nicky Santoro:
You fuckin' ass! You could've had the food and beverage job without going on television. You wanted to go on TV!

Ace Rothstein:
Your right. I did want to go on TV. That way I can have a form. I can fight back. I'm known. People see me. They know they can't fuck around with me like they could if I was unknown.

Nicky Santoro:
You made a big fuckin' spectacle of yourself.

Ace Rothstein:
Me? I wouldn't be in this situation if it wasn't for you. I mean, you brought down so much fuckin' heat on me. Everytime I meet somebody, the big question is, "Do I know you?"

Nicky Santoro:
Oh sure. Now you wanna bring your fuckin' license on me now. Is that it?

Ace Rothstein:
Nicky, what I tell you when you asked me if you could come out here? Now I knew you were gonna come out no matter what I said, but did I tell you? Do you remember what I told you?

Nicky Santoro:
Wait. Back up one fuckin' minute here. Just one minute. I asked you? When the fuck did I ever ask you if I could come out here?

Ace Rothstein:
You never...

Nicky Santoro:
Get this through your head. Get this through your head you jew motherfucker you. You only exist out here because of me. That's the only reason. Without me, you personally, and every fuckin' wiseguy still around, would be taking a piece of your fuckin' jew ass! Then where are you gonna go? Your fuckin' warned. Don't you ever go over my head again! You jew motherfucker you!
